Bible Commentary for Matthew 24:7

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:7


24:5 Many shall come in my name - First, false Christs, next, false prophets, #Mt 24:11|. At length, both together, #Mt 24:24|. And indeed never did so many impostors appear in the world as a few years before the destruction of Jerusalem; undoubtedly because that was the time wherein the Jews in general expected the Messiah.

24:6 Wars - Near: Rumours of wars - At a distance. All these things must come to pass - As a foundation for lasting tranquillity. But the end - Concerning which ye inquire, is not yet - So far from it, that this is but the beginning sorrows.

24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to affliction - As if ye were the cause of all these evils. And ye shall he hated of all nations - Even of those who tolerate all other sects and parties; but in no nation will the children of the devil tolerate the children of God. #Matt 10:17|.

    2020 pestilences - the world is calling the coronavirus. We are living in the end of days. I pray we all will be ready for JESUS return. Accept the LORD JESUS CHRIST into your heart while there is still time.

    The bible clearly states in verse 6 of this chapter of Matthew "The end shall NOT be yet" - this is not the end. Please go and listen to Jason Zelda on youtube. He explains it precisely, better than I can.
  • David on Matthew 24:7
    It does not say "nations " or "kingdoms ". It says nation singular against nation and kingdom against kingdom. Could the 2 nations be Jacob and Esau and the 2 kingdoms be darkness and Light?
  • Tim George on Matthew 24:7
    The signs of wars, and rumors of wars, as well as kingdoms rising against kingdoms have always been. The major sign now is pestilence such as Ebola that is mostly in West Africa is a sign of a pandemic that will be worldwide. These are the birth pains that Jesus was talking about, and as a woman has more frequent pains the closer she gets to delivery tells us that we are very close to the second coming. People need to turn to the Lord for salvation, before the Day of the Lord comes. Whoso ever will call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
